This is a simple script to compare failures across runs.

Given files containing stdout from several runs, each of which contains
a Failures: line, it will print a table of all failures for each run.
Test subdir names are abbreviated for compactness, i.e. generic->g.
For 7 results files named test 1 through test 7:

Failures:
g/075 g/082 g/209 g/233 g/270 g/388 x/004 x/073 x/076
-----------------------------------------------------
      g/082       g/233             x/004 x/073       test1
      g/082       g/233             x/004 x/073 x/076 test2
      g/082                         x/004 x/073 x/076 test3
      g/082                   g/388 x/004 x/073       test4
      g/082             g/270       x/004 x/073       test5
      g/082                         x/004 x/073       test6
g/075 g/082 g/209 g/233             x/004 x/073       test7

This lets us easily spot unique failures and outliers.

This could be enhanced to output CSV etc, but for now I think it's
helpful to visualize changes in failures across multiple runs.
